Conor is in an a cappella group, X-Factors, at Northwestern University. They go on an annual tour and this year Conor arranged for an Austin visit, performing at at The Trail of Lights, Whole Foods' Ice Skating Rink, Mozart's and other venues.
On Tuesday, December 15 they came to St. Andrew's to perform and do a workshop with Select Choir. They performed three numbers and then broke into groups and taught the Select Choir their arrangement of the song "Maybe." They then joined forces to sing the song together. It was a lot of fun and gave the Select Choir a glimpse at what a college singing group could be like. The workshop ended with a Q& A about college including singing opportunities in college, how an a cappella group works, college majors, and more. Click here to watch a video of their singing!
Select Choir Director Michael Rosensteel says, "We thoroughly enjoyed listening to and working with X-Factor. Conor Keelan is doing amazing things at Northwestern. I think it's very valuable that alumni are willing to come back and share their stories and experiences with our SAS students."
